ROTARY APPEAL TO CELEBRATE SCHOOL'S 50th ANNIVERSARY

Have you any musical instruments you no longer need or want? The call comes from Cromer and Sheringham Rotary Club who have pledged to support the 50th anniversary of Sheringham High School - with a collection of musical instruments.

"Over the years, the school has produced a number of talented musicians", said David Brown, Chairman of Governors and also a Rotarian. "We felt this tradition should not only be maintained but enhanced."

The school celebrates its Anniversary on October 16 and the Rotary Club is appealing to residents in the area for unwanted or broken instruments and related equipment.

"We are asking people to look in their cupboards and lofts", continued David Brown. " We are looking for any musical instrument - string, brass, wind or percussion - and also spares, cases and music stands. Where necessary, the school will attempt repairs themselves."

Rotarians will be at the school on October 16 to receive instruments before making an official presentation. At the same time, donors will be invited to look round the school where a special programme of events is being planned to mark the anniversary.

Sheringham High School's Head of Music commented, "We believe that music is for all and should be as accessible to as many people as possible. We have a number of students who demonstrate talent as musicians and who are unable to pursue their potential due to financial constraints. It would be wonderful if the school were in a position to lend these students an instrument to help with their musical development, as well as to encourage them to play an active part in the musical life of the school and local community."
